Compromise quotes by Henri-Pierre Roche
#1. Soon after they went back, Jules said to Jim: 'I love Magda. But it's a habit; it's not a great Love, not the real thing. To me, she's like a young mother and an attentive daughter, both at once.' 'But that's fine!' 'It's not the love I've always dreamed of having.' 'Does that kind of love exist?' said Jim. 'Of course! My love for Lucie.' Jim checked himself from saying, 'Because you do not possess her.' 'Besides,' Jules went on, 'knowing myself as I do, I shall never be able to forgive any woman for loving me. To love me is a sign of perversion or compromise -- and Lucie doesn't suffer from either. There's not a particle of me that she accepts.' 'With her, any man could think that.' 'Yes, could...' said Jules 'But I do.' 'Oh well,' said Jim, 'it's heroic and one can't help respecting it. It's a bit like martyrdom. And it's the key to your Life. If Lucie loved you...' 'She wouldn't be Lucie.' said Jules. #Quote by Henri-Pierre Roche
Compromise quotes by Imre Kertesz
#2. The West in general should stand up more for its own values. It is not always worthwhile to compromise. #Quote by Imre Kertesz
Compromise quotes by Clare O'Dea
#3. In a very humbling process, the Swiss have had to admit to their faults and compromise on secrecy, changing the law and releasing the names of bank clients to please the US, as well as signing a dozen double taxation agreements in six months to please the OECD. #Quote by Clare O'Dea
Compromise quotes by Etienne Gilson
#4. When man subverted order he did a great deal more than merely fall away from the rationality of his nature, diminish his own humanity, which is all that he does in Aristostle's ethics, nor he did merely compromise his destiny by an error, as it happens in the Plathonic myths; he brought disorder into the divine order, and presents the unhappy spectacle of a being in revolt against Being. [...] Every time a man sins he renews this act of revolt and prefers himself to God; in thus preferring himself, he separates himself from God; and in separating himself, he deprives himself of the sole end in which he can find beatitude and by that very fact condemns himself to misery. #Quote by Etienne Gilson
Compromise quotes by Steven Erikson
#5. Ambition is not a dirty word. Piss on compromise. Go for the throat. #Quote by Steven Erikson
Compromise quotes by Mustafa Kemal Ataturk
#6. Those who are inclined to compromise never make a revolution. #Quote by Mustafa Kemal Ataturk
Compromise quotes by Chris Hedges
#7. The rebel, dismissed as impractical and zealous, is chronically misunderstood. Those cursed with timidity, fear, or blindness and those who are slaves to opportunism call for moderation and patience. They distort the language of religion, spirituality, compromise, generosity, and compassion to justify cooperation with systems of power that are bent on our destruction. The rebel is deaf to these critiques. The rebel hears only his or her inner voice, which demands steadfast defiance. Self-promotion, positions of influence, the adulation of the public, and the awards and prominent positions that come with bowing before authority mean nothing to the rebel, who understands that virtue is not rewarded. The rebel expects nothing and gets nothing. But for the rebel, to refuse to struggle, to refuse to rebel, is to commit spiritual and moral suicide. #Quote by Chris Hedges
Compromise quotes by Amos Oz
#8. Writing a poem is like having an affair, a one-night stand; a short story is a romance, a relationship; a novel is a marriage-one has to be cunning, devise compromises, and make sacrifices. #Quote by Amos Oz
Compromise quotes by Yadin Kaufmann
#9. Loneliness is no excuse for compromise. Be comfortable with yourself before you choose to be with someone else just to avoid being alone. #Quote by Yadin Kaufmann
Compromise quotes by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
#10. Our dear Imam said that the occupying regime [Israel] must be wiped off the map ... We cannot compromise over the issue of Palestine ... I have no doubt that the new wave that has started in Palestine, and we witness it in the Islamic world too, will eliminate this disgraceful stain from the Islamic world. #Quote by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
Compromise quotes by Charles Le Gai Eaton
#11. So many ruins bear witness to good intentions which went astray, good intentions unenlightened by any glimmer of wisdom. To bring religion to the people is a fine and necessary undertaking, but this is not a situation in which the proposed end can be said to justify the means. The further people have drifted from the truth, the greater is the temptation to water down the truth, glossing over its less palatable aspects and, in short, allowing a policy of compromise to become one of adulteration. In this way it is hoped that the common man – if he can be found – will be encouraged to find a small corner in his busy life for religion without having to change his ways or to grapple with disturbing thoughts. It is a forlorn hope. Standing, as it were, at the pavement's edge with his tray of goods, the priest reduces the price until he is offering his wares for nothing: divine judgement is a myth, hell a wicked superstition, prayer less important than decent behaviour, and God himself dispensable in the last resort; and still the passers-by go their way, sorry over having to ignore such a nice man but with more important matters demanding their attention. And yet these matters with which they are most urgently concerned are, for so many of them, quicksands in which they feel themselves trapped. Had they been offered a real alternative, a rock firm-planted from the beginning of time, they might have been prepared to pay a high price. #Quote by Charles Le Gai Eaton
Compromise quotes by Kevin McCloud
#12. As a property developer, I learned a long time ago to choose your battles wisely and that, unfortunately, compromise is a given. #Quote by Kevin McCloud
Compromise quotes by Samuel Johnson
#13. Life cannot subsist in society but by reciprocal concessions. #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Compromise quotes by Yogi Bhajan
#14. Our purpose in this life is to live in higher consciousness and to teach others to live in higher consciousness. But the best test to that consciousness is humility, selflessness, and sweetness. When you teach, teach with honesty, truthfulness, and straightforwardness. As a teacher, never compromise. As a man, always compromise. The teacher who compromises is an idiot; a person who does not compromise is an idiot. Because the teacher does not teach for himself, but for the higher consciousness. And higher consciousness will never compromise with lower consciousness. This is a straight law and that has to be considered as a law; that has to be observed as a law. #Quote by Yogi Bhajan
Compromise quotes by Ayn Rand
#15. There can be no compromise on moral principles. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Compromise quotes by Nelson Mandela
#16. He knew when to compromise. Yet he never compromised his principles. He was a militant. Yet a militant who knew how to plan, assess concrete situations and emerge with rational solutions to problems. #Quote by Nelson Mandela
Compromise quotes by Adam Silver
#17. Let me be clear: Any new approach must ensure the integrity of the game. One of my most important responsibilities as commissioner of the NBA is to protect the integrity of professional basketball and preserve public confidence in the league and our sport. I oppose any course of action that would compromise these objectives. But I believe that sports betting should be brought out of the underground and into the sunlight where it can be appropriately monitored and regulated #Quote by Adam Silver
Compromise quotes by Wesley Chu
#18. Whoever said a good agreement was a compromise neither side was completely happy with just had poor negotiators. #Quote by Wesley Chu
Compromise quotes by Edmund Burke
#19. All government is founded on compromise and banter. #Quote by Edmund Burke
Compromise quotes by Helene Cixous
#20. Everyone knows that a place exists which is not economically or politically indebted to all the vileness and compromise. That is not obliged to reproduce the system. That is writing. If there is a somewhere else that can escape the infernal repetition, it lies in that direction, where it writes itself, where it dreams, where it invents new worlds. #Quote by Helene Cixous
Compromise quotes by Jean Sasson
#21. How true is it that humanity refuses compromise during prosperity, and reaches out for arbitration when weak. #Quote by Jean Sasson
Compromise quotes by Scott McCloud
#22. Comics offers tremendous resources to all writers and artists:faithfulness, control, a chance to be heard far and wide without fear of compromise ... it offers range and versatility with all the potential imagery of film and painting plus the intimacy of the written word. And all that's needed is the desire to be heard
the will to learn
and the ability to see. #Quote by Scott McCloud
Compromise quotes by Stephen Fry
#23. Sometimes political correctness exists more in the furious minds of its enemies than in reality, which gets n with compromise and common sense without too much hysteria. #Quote by Stephen Fry
Compromise quotes by Ayn Rand
#24. When numbers are substituted for morality, and no individual can claim a right, but any gang can assert any desire whatever, when compromise is the only policy expected of those in power, and the preservation of the moment's "stability," of peace at any price, is their only goal - the winner, necessarily, is whoever presents the most unjust and irrational demands; the system serves as an open invitation to do so. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Compromise quotes by Epictetus
#25. Many people who have progressively lowered their personal standards in an attempt to win social acceptance and life's comforts bitterly resent those of philosophical bent who refuse to compromise their spiritual ideals and who seek to better themselves. #Quote by Epictetus
Compromise quotes by Coach Taylor
#26. Marriage requires maturity. Marriage requires two people who, for the rest of their lives, are willing to listen, to really listen to each other. And that marriage requires the greatest of all things, compromise. #Quote by Coach Taylor
Compromise quotes by Aldous Huxley
#27. Pilkington, at Mombasa, had produced individuals who were sexually mature at four and full grown at six and a half. A scientific triumph. But socially useless. Six-year-old men and women were too stupid to do even Epsilon work. And the process was an all-or-nothing one; either you failed to modify at all, or else you modified the whole way. They were still trying to find the ideal compromise between adults of twenty and adults of six. So far without success. Mr Foster sighed and shook his head. #Quote by Aldous Huxley
Compromise quotes by Ronnie Day
#28. Love is not a compromise. It's something like the rising of the sun,although you've seen it a thousand times, you can't explain it. #Quote by Ronnie Day
Compromise quotes by Kevin DeYoung
#29. Holiness is the sum of a million little things - the avoidance of little evils and little foibles, the setting aside of little bits of worldliness and little acts of compromise, the putting to death of little inconsistencies and little indiscretions, the attention to little duties and little dealings, the hard work of little self-denials and little self-restraints, the cultivation of little benevolences and little forbearances. #Quote by Kevin DeYoung
Compromise quotes by Talib Kweli
#30. Once you're signed to a label you compromise. #Quote by Talib Kweli
Compromise quotes by Paul Kagame
#31. Let no one think that flexibility and a predisposition to compromise is a sign of weakness or a sell-out. #Quote by Paul Kagame
Compromise quotes by Stephen Kinzer
#32. Guerrilla leaders win wars by being paranoid and ruthless. Once they take power, they are expected to abandon those qualities and embrace opposite ones: tolerance, compromise and humility. Almost none manages to do so. #Quote by Stephen Kinzer
Compromise quotes by Harry Blamires
#33. We twentieth-century Christians have chosen the way of compromise. We withdraw our Christian consciousness from the fields of public, commercial, and social life. When we enter these fields we are compelled to accept, for purposes of discussion, the secular frame of reference. #Quote by Harry Blamires
Compromise quotes by Paul G. Bailey
#34. If you want to succeed in what you do, learn how to compromise with the people around you. #Quote by Paul G. Bailey
Compromise quotes by Alison Bechdel
#35. Your unconscious wants to express the pain you feel about your own lost innocence. But your ego wants to keep it repressed. To the compromise is anxiety. #Quote by Alison Bechdel
Compromise quotes by James McGreevey
#36. As I climbed the electoral ladder - from state assemblyman to mayor of Woodbridge and finally to governor of New Jersey - political compromises came easy to me because I'd learned how to keep a part of myself innocent of them. #Quote by James McGreevey
Compromise quotes by Abraham Lincoln
#37. Let there be no compromise on the question of extending slavery. If there be, all our labor is lost, and, ere long, must be done again. #Quote by Abraham Lincoln
Compromise quotes by DeVon Franklin
#38. Commit to a career built on sacrifice, not compromise. #Quote by DeVon Franklin
Compromise quotes by Jacques Santer
#39. There could be some compromise, but I think we have to stick to the provisions of the treaty, and the provisions of the treaty are saying that the president is appointed for a mandate of eight years time. I think it would be very damaging for the European Central Bank if there would be a splitting of this mandate. #Quote by Jacques Santer
Compromise quotes by Santosh Kalwar
#40. Commitment is another name for relationship not the compromise. #Quote by Santosh Kalwar
Compromise quotes by Bharat Anand
#41. Trade-offs require clear choices, yet in a world of powerful forces, it is often easier to compromise than to make difficult choices. By #Quote by Bharat Anand
Compromise quotes by Ayn Rand
#42. There can be no compromise on basic principles. There can be no compromise on moral issues. There can be no compromise on matters of knowledge, of truth, of rational conviction. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Compromise quotes by Alan Hollinghurst
#43. Loving him was all interpretation, creative in its way. We barely used language at all to communicate: he sulked and thought I was putting him down if I made complicated remarks, and sometimes I felt numb at the compromise and self-suppression I submitted to. Yet beyond that it was all guesswork; we were thinking for two. The darkened air of the flat was full of the hints we made. The stupidity and the resentment were dreadful at times. But then in sex he lost his awkwardness. He shows his capacity to change as I rambled over him now with my fingertips and watched him glow and gulp with desire; his clothes seemed to shrivel off him and he lay there making his naked claim for the only certainty in his life. It wasn't something learnt, I suspected, from the guys before me who'd picked him up and fucked him and fucked him around. It was a kind of gift for giving, and while he did whatever I wanted it emerged as the most important thing there was for him. It was all the harder, then, when the resentment returned and I longed for him to go. #Quote by Alan Hollinghurst
Compromise quotes by Billy Graham
#44. We are to renounce the evil influence of the world, the flesh, and the devil. There can be no parleying, bargaining, compromise, or hesitation. Christ demands total loyalty. #Quote by Billy Graham
Compromise quotes by Julianne Moore
#45. Life is full of compromises, and whether or not you're willing to negotiate. #Quote by Julianne Moore
Compromise quotes by Dalai Lama
#46. I must have dialogue with the Chinese government, and dialogue requires compromise. Therefore, I'm speaking for genuine self-rule, not for independence. #Quote by Dalai Lama
Compromise quotes by Tim Salmon
#47. I have always been determined to never compromise my faith or my principles. I always relied on my God-given talent when I took the field. So the idea of using PED's to enhance my performance was a line I chose not to cross. #Quote by Tim Salmon
Compromise quotes by Laurell K. Hamilton
#48. Being a successful couple was learning what you were willing to compromise on, and what you weren't; learning when to stand your ground, and when to give it up; what was truly important enough to fight over, and what was just you being pissy. You learned each other's hot buttons, the places that hurt, or angered, when you pressed them. Love makes you learn where all the pitfalls are, and how to avoid them, or how to set them off. #Quote by Laurell K. Hamilton
Compromise quotes by Barack Obama
#49. At some fundamental level, religion does not allow for compromise. It insists on the impossible. If God has spoken, then followers are expected to live up to God's edicts, regardless of the consequences. To base one's life on such uncompromising commitments may be sublime; to base our policy making on such commitments would be a dangerous thing. #Quote by Barack Obama
Compromise quotes by Lynn Austin
#50. Every time you compromise, something inside your spirit dies a little, #Quote by Lynn Austin
Compromise quotes by Eric Weiner
#51. Compromise is a skill, and like all skills it atrophies from lack of use. #Quote by Eric Weiner
Compromise quotes by Annie Leonard
#52. We can only compromise so much until no solution is reached #Quote by Annie Leonard
Compromise quotes by Kristen Ashley
#53. She was also not a woman who would be told what to do, not like Jessie, who knew the art of compromise (though, it should be said, Jessie knew it existed, she didn't utilize it much). #Quote by Kristen Ashley
Compromise quotes by Maya Angelou
#54. I do not believe that the accident of birth makes people sisters and brothers. It makes them siblings. Gives them mutuality of parentage. Sisterhood and brotherhood are conditions people have to work at. It's a serious matter. You compromise, you give, you take, you stand firm, and you're relentless ... And it is an investment. Sisterhood means if you happen to be in Burma and I happen to be in San Diego and I'm married to someone who is very jealous and you're married to somebody who is very possessive, if you call me in the middle of the night, I have to come. #Quote by Maya Angelou
Compromise quotes by Ben Carson
#55. Disagreement is part of being a person who has choices. One of those choices is to respect others and engage in intelligent conversation about differences of opinion without becoming enemies, eventually allowing us to move forward to compromise. #Quote by Ben Carson
Compromise quotes by Tony Ruggiero
#56. The vampire Dimitri calmly looked up at Reese and smiled. "Commander, everything gets easier over time," he answered. "Especially if you have all the time that there is. And I do. As a human, you live such a short span of time that you do not learn that life is a continuous battle with one enemy - and that compromise is the only way to ultimately win. Those that do not understand this and think they can control everything; fall to the death of illusion. #Quote by Tony Ruggiero
Compromise quotes by Nathaniel Philbrick
#57. The moment any of them gave up on the difficult work of living with their neighbors--and all of the compromise, frustration, and delay that inevitably entailed--they risked losing everything. #Quote by Nathaniel Philbrick
Compromise quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#58. It may be said of Socialism, therefore, that its friends recommended it as increasing equality, while its foes resisted it as decreasing liberty ... .The compromise eventually made was one of the most interesting and even curious cases in history. It was decided to do everything that had ever been denounced in Socialism, and nothing that had ever been desired in it ... we proceeded to prove that it was possible to sacrifice liberty without gaining equality ... .In short, people decided that it was impossible to achieve any of the good of Socialism, but they comforted themselves by achieving all the bad. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Compromise quotes by Dipin Damodharan
#59. We're still living with the ideology of compromise, not with the ideology of recognition #Quote by Dipin Damodharan
Compromise quotes by Sam Altman
#60. If you compromise and hire someone mediocre, you will always regret it. #Quote by Sam Altman
Compromise quotes by Reshma Saujani
#61. We've become conditioned to compromise and shrink ourselves in order to be liked. The problem is, when you work so hard to get everyone to like you, you very often end up not liking yourself so much. #Quote by Reshma Saujani
Compromise quotes by Steve Chabot
#62. The Senate needs 60 votes to pass anything. They have to compromise with liberal Democrats to spend more money. Even though arguably we have control of the Senate, we really don't. #Quote by Steve Chabot
Compromise quotes by Beth Moore
#63. God created us all to be part of His body. We function together. Fellowship is a precious gift the Lord gives His children. To neglect fellowship or refuse to draw near those who can make our journey all that it should be is to make ourselves vulnerable to compromise. Anytime we withdraw from wise friends who will hold us accountable, we seek our own desires. We become resistant to "all sound wisdom" (Prov. 18:1) - and that is a precarious place to be. If we are committed to travel toward the heart of God, then we need to move toward the wise friend, of any age, who can help us stay on the journey. Cynthia Heald, A Woman's Journey to the Heart of God #Quote by Beth Moore
Compromise quotes by Edith Wharton
#64. Some men," Flamel irresistibly added, "think of books merely as tools, others as tooling. I'm between the two; there are days when I use them as scenery, other days when I want them as society; so that, as you see, my library represents a makeshift compromise between looks and brains, and the collectors look down on me almost as much as the students. #Quote by Edith Wharton
Compromise quotes by Ludwig Von Mises
#65. In science, compromise is a betrayal of truth. #Quote by Ludwig Von Mises
Compromise quotes by Lord Edward Cecil
#66. Compromise: An agreement between two men to do what both agree is wrong. #Quote by Lord Edward Cecil
Compromise quotes by Alexi Lawless
#67. It's not compromise if it doesn't sting just a little bit on both sides, now is it? #Quote by Alexi Lawless
Compromise quotes by Edith Wharton
#68. But how could she trust herself to keep her footing? She knew the strength of the opposing impulses-she could feel the countless hands of habit dragging her back into some fresh compromise with fate. #Quote by Edith Wharton
Compromise quotes by Robert Fritz
#69. If you limit your choice only to what seems possible or reasonable, you disconnect yourself from what you truly want, and all that is left is a compromise. #Quote by Robert Fritz
Compromise quotes by Arkady Strugatsky
#70. Have we never had to compromise before? Of course, hundreds of times! And will hundreds more! And not with gods, but with lousy bureaucrats, with nits who are disgusting to touch. #Quote by Arkady Strugatsky
Compromise quotes by Hunter S. Thompson
#71. With apologies to Austin Ruse and the National Review, it's passages like this, not any endorsement of the drug-fueled, last-minute allnighter, that explain why Hunter Thompson will always be celebrated by young people. It had nothing to do with drugs, the F word, or being cool, and everything to do with the fact that Thompson never lost his sense of appropriate outrage, never fell into the trap of accepting that moral compromise was somehow a sign of growth and adulthood. Both #Quote by Hunter S. Thompson
Compromise quotes by George Herbert
#72. A lean compromise is better than a fat lawsuit. #Quote by George Herbert
Compromise quotes by Timothy Snyder
#73. In the euphoria of victory, Nazis tried to organize a boycott of Jewish shops. This was not very successful at first. But the practice of marking one firm as "Jewish" and another as "Aryan" with paint on the windows or walls did affect the way Germans thought about household economics. A shop marked "Jewish" had no future. It became an object of covetous plans. As property was marked as ethnic, envy transformed ethics. If shops could be "Jewish," what about other companies and properties? The wish that Jews might disappear, perhaps suppressed at first, rose as it was leavened by greed. Thus the Germans who marked shops as "Jewish" participated in the process by which Jews really did disappear - as did people who simply looked on. Accepting the markings as a natural part of the urban landscape was already a compromise with a murderous future. You #Quote by Timothy Snyder
Compromise quotes by Thomas S. Monson
#74. A moral coward is one who is afraid to do what he thinks is right because others will disapprove or laugh. Remember that all men have their fears, but those who face their fears with dignity have courage as well. #Quote by Thomas S. Monson
Compromise quotes by Milan Kundera
#75. You must understand that by this time the only choice was among several varieties of defeat, but the town in question rejected compromise and would settle for nothing but victory. That was not reason talking; that was the voice of litost! #Quote by Milan Kundera
Compromise quotes by Michael Moorcock
#76. For this was the other thing that Elric knew: that to compromise with Tyranny is always to be destroyed by it. The sanest and most logical choice lay always in resistance. #Quote by Michael Moorcock
Compromise quotes by Arthur Miller
#77. He'll come back. We all come back, kate. These private little revolutions always die. The compromise is always made. In a peculiar way. Frank is right
every man does have a star. The star of one's honesty. And you spend your life groping for it, but once it's out it never lights again. I don't think he went very far. He probably just wanted to be alone to watch his star go out. #Quote by Arthur Miller
Compromise quotes by Alan Grayson
#78. The real two-party system in America is the Meanies and the Weenies. The Meanies want to take away your benefits, and the Weenies want to compromise with them. #Quote by Alan Grayson
Compromise quotes by Beverly Johnson
#79. Rocks make no compromise for sex ... rock climbing is not like some sports, where it is made easier for women; or sports like, say, softball, which is only baseball for soft people. On a rock, everything is equal. #Quote by Beverly Johnson
Compromise quotes by Jeaniene Frost
#80. Compromise Lesson One: Pull a dick move, and your dick gets denied. Every woman knew that, and now, so did the vampire sitting next to me. #Quote by Jeaniene Frost
Compromise quotes by Zelda Fitzgerald
#81. There seemed to be some heavenly support beneath his shoulder blades that lifted his feet from the ground in ecstatic suspension, as if he secretly enjoyed the ability to fly but was walking as a compromise to convention. #Quote by Zelda Fitzgerald
Compromise quotes by Jessica Park
#82. I will never compromise on my poorly-thought-out, internally-inconsistent,
quasi-irrational principles. That's just how I roll. #Quote by Jessica Park
Compromise quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#83. Plantain branches, like these ones here, Sister Whittaker, are also said to be symbolic of the human body. Because of that shape, plantains are used as gestures of peace - as gestures of humanity, you might say. You throw one on the ground at the feet of your enemy, to show your surrender or your willingness to consider compromise. #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
Compromise quotes by Samuel Beckett
#84. Habit is a compromise effected between the individual and his environment, or between the individual and his own organic eccentricities, the guarantee of a dull inviolability, the lightning-conductor of his existence. #Quote by Samuel Beckett
Compromise quotes by Daniell Koepke
#85. Not all toxic people are cruel and uncaring. Some of them love us dearly. Many of them have good intentions. Most are simply toxic to our being simply because their needs and way of existing force us to compromise ourselves and our happiness. They aren't inherently bad people, but they aren't the right people for us. #Quote by Daniell Koepke
Compromise quotes by Bill Owens
#86. If you ask me to compromise on principle, I will get out the veto pen. #Quote by Bill Owens
Compromise quotes by Ann Widdecombe
#87. For years I had been disillusioned by the Church of England's compromising on everything. The Catholic Church doesn't care if something is unpopular. #Quote by Ann Widdecombe
Compromise quotes by Susan Anne Mason
#88. Love should never be viewed as a competition. Love requires compromise and sacrifice. There's no place for ego in a marriage.~pg. 357 #Quote by Susan Anne Mason
Compromise quotes by David Mezzapelle
#89. Understand, respect, and embrace other people's uniqueness. That is the foundation of any relationship - spouses, significant others, family, friends, etc. We are not the same and those differences are why relationships work. Spicing up a relationship with compromise! #Quote by David Mezzapelle
Compromise quotes by Mamata Banerjee
#90. Our party, I can tell you, is very transparent; we believe in our credentials. Our credentials are our only credibility; we are not going to compromise on that; we are the commoners. #Quote by Mamata Banerjee
Compromise quotes by Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel
#91. Not curiosity, not vanity, not the consideration of expediency, not duty and conscientiousness, but an unquenchable, unhappy thirst that brooks no compromise leads us to truth. #Quote by Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel
Compromise quotes by Eleanor Roosevelt
#92. If you have to compromise, be sure to compromise up. #Quote by Eleanor Roosevelt

Compromise quotes by Mark Manson
#96. Democracy can exist only when you are willing to tolerate views that oppose your own, when you're willing to give up some things you might want for the sake of a safe and healthy community, when you're willing to compromise and accept that sometimes things don't go your way. #Quote by Mark Manson
Compromise quotes by Alexis De Tocqueville
#97. Trade is the natural enemy of all violent passions because it loves moderation, delights in compromise an is most careful to avoid anger. #Quote by Alexis De Tocqueville
Compromise quotes by Craig Olson
#98. We take a cavalier approach to Scripture at our own peril. If the scientific and historical accounts are true, then the commandments, promises and penalties are much more so. The Bible is not just a guideline. It is the authoritative Word of God. Disobeying it has consequences. Obeying it has rewards. Yet we fudge. We compromise. We rationalize. We trade away our spiritual integrity for man's approval and as we do, we gradually erode our ability to distinguish right from wrong, to see our own failings, and to turn back in repentance to God. We simply have no idea how this cavalier attitude towards God's Word taints our witness and hinders the kingdom of God. #Quote by Craig Olson
Compromise quotes by Megan Phelps-Roper
#99. Doubt was nothing more than an epistemological humility: a deep and practical awareness that outside our sphere of knowledge there existed information and experiences that might show our position to be in error. Doubt causes us to hold a strong position a bit more loosely, such that an acknowledgment of ignorance or error doesn't crush our sense of self or leave us totally unmoored if our position proves untenable. Certainty is the opposite: it hampers inquiry and hinders growth. It teaches us to ignore evidence that contradicts our ideas, and encourages us to defend our position at all costs, even as it reveals itself as indefensible. Certainty sees compromise as weak, hypocritical, evil, suppressing empathy and allowing us to justify inflicting horrible pain on others. #Quote by Megan Phelps-Roper
Compromise quotes by Nevada Barr
#100. American mythology would have it that divorced or widowed women in their middle years were desperate to remarry. That had not been Polly's experience. Most had made lives they enjoyed and would only compromise for a very shiny white knight with a particularly breathtaking steed. #Quote by Nevada Barr
Compromise quotes by Salman Rushdie
#101. What happens when you win?
When your enemies are at your mercy: how will you act then? Compromise is the temptation of the weak; this is the test for the strong. #Quote by Salman Rushdie
Compromise quotes by Gregory Bateson
#102. A little hypocrisy and a little compromise oils the wheels of social life #Quote by Gregory Bateson
Compromise quotes by Mary Parker Follett
#103. There are three ways of dealing with difference: domination, compromise, and integration. By domination only one side gets what it wants; by compromise neither side gets what it wants; by integration we find a way by which both sides may get what they wish. #Quote by Mary Parker Follett
Compromise quotes by Barack Obama
#104. The reason we're governing right now is because we defeated moderate Republicans with moderate Democrats. And people need to be patient about that and realize that compromise is not evil. #Quote by Barack Obama
Compromise quotes by Piet Pieterszoon Hein
#105. True wisdom knows it must comprise some nonsense as a compromise, lest fools should fail to find it wise. #Quote by Piet Pieterszoon Hein
Compromise quotes by Thiruman Archunan
#106. Marriage is the best compromise between nature and culture. #Quote by Thiruman Archunan
Compromise quotes by Vivian Balakrishnan
#107. I was recruited by the former Prime Minister Goh Chok Tong. And I never forgot his key message to me when he was encouraging me to come in. He said: "You must hold fast to your values. If you have to compromise your values in order to join us, you lose your value to us." #Quote by Vivian Balakrishnan
Compromise quotes by R.C. Sproul
#108. We live in age of compromise, but if we stand on the bedrock of God's truth, we will not bend with the winds of relativism and faithlessness. #Quote by R.C. Sproul
Compromise quotes by Christopher Kimball
#109. There is no tomorrow. Time cannot be saved and spent. There is only today and how we choose to live it. The future is unknowable and unpredictable; it offers no clear path to happiness. Science will not save us. Each of us, then, needs to cobble together a daily routine filled with basic human pleasures, wedded, to be sure, to the best that modernity has to offer. It is a life of compromise rather than extremes. It is a touch of the old and a taste of the new. And cooking, it seems to me, offers the most direct way back into the very heart of the good life. It is useful, it is necessary, it is social, and it offers immediate pleasure and satisfaction. It connects with the past and ensures the future. Standing in front of a hot oven, we remind ourselves of who we are, of what we are capable of and how we might stumble back to the center of happiness. Effort and pleasure go hand in hand. #Quote by Christopher Kimball
Compromise quotes by Pierce Brown
#110. One must worry about the strength of a principle when it must compromise itself so often to survive. #Quote by Pierce Brown
Compromise quotes by Brent Hayward
#111. Idealism and naiveté were youthful cousins. Foresight and the considerations of age and experience often brought inaction, compromise, second-guessing; the ability to foresee the extent of actions--to understand implications of cause and effect--could effectively thwart spontaneous, if impractical, decisions. #Quote by Brent Hayward
Compromise quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#112. God never jests with us, and will not compromise the end of nature, by permitting any inconsequence in its procession. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Compromise quotes by Damian Lewis
#113. Producing is a world of compromise and actors are utterly spoiled all the time. #Quote by Damian Lewis
Compromise quotes by PZ Myers
#114. We godless lack that certainty, and we know the world is a complex place that requires compromise and is not ruled by a moral force - virtue is subject to negotiation, and is found in working together with others to find mutually satisfactory solutions. Good is not absolute, it is an emergent property that arises from successful networks of individuals. It is also something that is measured by evidence: we look at the good that people do, not the promises that they make and never keep, or the lies that dovetail nicely into dogma. Competence is a virtue. Intent is meaningless without action. #Quote by PZ Myers
Compromise quotes by Benjamin Cardozo
#115. In our worship of certainty we must distinguish between the sound certainty and the sham, between what is gold and what is tinsel; and then, when certainty is attained, we must remember that it is not the only good; that we can buy it at too high a price; that there is danger in perpetual quiescence as well as in perpetual motion; and that a compromise must be found in a principle of growth. #Quote by Benjamin Cardozo
Compromise quotes by Barack Obama
#116. One thing I will not compromise over is whether or not Congress should pay the tab for a bill they've already racked up. If Congress refuses to give the United States the ability to pay its bills on time, the consequences for the entire global economy could be catastrophic. #Quote by Barack Obama
Compromise quotes by Li Shufu
#117. Product investment, quality management, and all the things that are key for a car company - great, there has been no compromise in those aspects. But I feel there's a lot we could do on communication, particularly from a Chinese perspective. #Quote by Li Shufu
Compromise quotes by Tony Robbins
#118. Don't expect people to abide by your rules if you don't clearly communicate what they are. And don't expect them to live by your rules if you're not willing to compromise and live by at least some of theirs. #Quote by Tony Robbins
Compromise quotes by Matt Blaze
#119. What encryption lets us do is say, "Yes, the Internet is insecure." Bad guys are able to compromise computers everywhere, but we're able to tolerate that because if they do intercept our messages, they can't do any harm with it. #Quote by Matt Blaze
Compromise quotes by Sidney Poitier
#120. John Cassavetes once gave me some advice that has proved invaluable... He said, 'We're good friends, but never, ever do an artistic favor for a friend. Loan friends money, be there for them in every other way, but don't do them any artistic favors, because you've got to have one area of your life where there's no room for compromise. #Quote by Sidney Poitier
Compromise quotes by William J. Clinton
#121. When we put aside partisanship, embrace the best ideas regardless of where they come from and work for principled compromise, we can move America not left or right, but forward. #Quote by William J. Clinton
Compromise quotes by Dalai Lama XIV
#122. Non-violence means dialogue, using our language, the human language. Dialogue means compromise; respecting each other's rights; in the spirit of reconciliation there is a real solution to conflict and disagreement. There is no hundred percent winner, no hundred percent loser - not that way but half-and-half. That is the practical way, the only way. #Quote by Dalai Lama XIV
Compromise quotes by Nicholas Sparks
#123. Marriage is about compromise; it's about doing something for the other person, even when you don't want to. #Quote by Nicholas Sparks
Compromise quotes by Nicole Peeler
#124. Because I think that sometimes, when you really love somebody, you don't ask them for the kind of compromise that is actually a sacrifice. The kind where one person gives up everything they have, everything they are, just so they can be with the other person. And you certainly don't expect that shit. You don't expect someone to prove their love. To love you that little bit more than you love them. #Quote by Nicole Peeler
Compromise quotes by Roger Deakins
#125. Every shot I have ever made has been a compromise in some way. No image has ever been as good as the one I envisioned in my mind's eye. #Quote by Roger Deakins
Compromise quotes by Rush Limbaugh
#126. One thing that I don't know if people have come to grips with yet is just how serious ISIS is, just how serious militant Islamists are about Sharia. There is no compromise. There is no halfway. There is no mutual cohabitation plan. #Quote by Rush Limbaugh
Compromise quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
#127. We are not saved by a compromise, by mercy defeating justice, or law suspending its operations; no, we defy the eagle's eye to detect a flaw in the groundwork of our confidence. #Quote by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Compromise quotes by Dhirubhai Ambani
#128. We must always go for the best. Do not compromise on quality. Reject if it is not the best - not only the best in India, but globally. #Quote by Dhirubhai Ambani
Compromise quotes by Wayne Dyer
#129. It's one thing to make a pronouncement in a moment of inspiration about what you intend to manifest in your life or what kind of person you intend to become. It's quite another thing to make a commitment to holding that vision regardless of what difficulties or obstacles may surface. Holding the vision involves an unwillingness to compromise what you're visualizing for yourself. It means being willing to suffer through criticism and what appears to be an uncooperative universe. #Quote by Wayne Dyer
Compromise quotes by Gerald R. Ford
#130. I know well the coequal role of the Congress in our constitutional process. I love the House of Representatives. I revere the traditions of the Senate despite my too-short internship in that great body. As President, within the limits of basic principles, my motto toward the Congress is communication, conciliation, compromise, and cooperation. #Quote by Gerald R. Ford
Compromise quotes by Liza Palmer
#131. I have that old sinking feeling. I've been overly available, sickeningly sweet and forever enabling all in the name of being 'liked.' I've compromised myself. I've suffered fools, idiots and dullards. I've gone on far too many dates with men because I felt guilty that they liked me more than I liked them. I've fallen deeply and madly I'm love with men I've never met just because I thought they looked 'deep.' I've built whole futures with men I hardly knew; I've planned weddings and named invisible children based on a side glance. I've made chemistry where there was none. I've forced intimacy while building higher Walls. I've been alone in a two year relationship. I've faked more orgasms than I can count while being comfortable with no affection at all.
I realise I have to make a decision right here and now. Do I go back to the sliver of a person I was before or do I, despite whatever bullshit happened tonight, hold on to this... This authenticity? If I go back to the the way I was before tonight, I'll have to compromise myself, follow rules with men who have none, hold my tongue, be quiet and laugh at shitty jokes. I have to never be challenged, yet be called challenging when I have an opinion or, really, speak at all. I'll never be torched by someone and get goosebumps again. I'll never be outside of myself. I'll never let go. I'll never lose myself. I'll never know what real love is - both for someone else and for me. I'll look back on this life and wish I could do it #Quote by Liza Palmer
Compromise quotes by Kajol
#132. Films are not the sole area in my life. Films are a passion. But it's not like I'll die if I don't get another movie. I'll grow, I'll flourish, I'll learn something new, but I'll always do something that I like. If I get the right film, I'll do it. I will not compromise for anything else. #Quote by Kajol
Compromise quotes by Nicholas Stoller
#133. A big part of being in a relationship or marriage or whatever is you have to eventually compromise. Your life doesn't end up exactly the way you think it's going to, and if it's the right relationship, you might have to compromise what you're doing professionally. #Quote by Nicholas Stoller
Compromise quotes by Richard Russo
#134. Maybe that was what marriage meant, except that in theirs it had been a one-way street. He couldn't think of a single behavior of Becka's that he had altered in the slightest. But perhaps that was because there was so little he'd wanted to change, whereas she'd evidently viewed him as a fixer-upper from the start, structurally sound, the sort of property you wouldn't mind owning after you'd completed all the necessary renovations. First, though, you'd have to gut it, which was pretty much how Raymer felt by the end. As if the overhaul of his person was coming in over budget, and the person footing the bills was having serious second thoughts. #Quote by Richard Russo
Compromise quotes by K. Langston
#135. Love is a lot of things. It's a hard place to fall and a soft place to land. It's give and take, push and pull. Love can bring out the absolute best or worst in us. But, when you find a love worth fightin' for, that's true love. And no matter the struggle or compromise, you can't walk away from that. Now ask yourself, is he worth fightin' for? #Quote by K. Langston
Compromise quotes by Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
#136. If you want to sin, sin wholeheartedly and openly. Sins too have their lessons to teach the earnest sinner, as virtues the earnest saint. It is the mixing up of the two that is so disastrous. Nothing can block you so effectively as compromise, for it shows lack of earnestness, without which nothing can be done. #Quote by Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
Compromise quotes by May Sarton

Compromise quotes by Taona Dumisani Chiveneko

Compromise quotes by Mark Udall

Compromise quotes by Katie McGarry
#145. I don't know who I am anymore, but I do know I don't want to be this girl. I just want to be me. But according to Sean, I don't get what I want unless I compromise, and I don't want to compromise. #Quote by Katie McGarry
Compromise quotes by Shauna Niequist
#146. Many of us, myself, included, considered our souls necessary collateral damage to get done the things we felt we simply had to get get done - because of other people's expectations, because we want to be know as highly capable, because we're trying to outrun an inner emptiness. And for a while we don't even realize the compromise we've made. We're on autopilot, chugging through the day on fear and caffeine, checking things off the list, falling into bed without even a real thought or feeling or connection all day long, just a sense of having made it through. #Quote by Shauna Niequist
Compromise quotes by Jane Goodall
#147. Realize that change - whilst we want it to happen fast - is usually the result of a great deal of work, and often comes as a result of a series of compromises (so long as we do not compromise our values). #Quote by Jane Goodall
Compromise quotes by Richard Engel
#148. Insurgencies are easy to make and hard to stop. Only a few ingredients need to combine to create an insurgency; like oxygen and fire, they're very common and mix all too often. The recipe is, simply, a legitimate grievance against a state, a state that refuses to compromise, a quorum of angry people, and access to weapons. #Quote by Richard Engel

Compromise quotes by Bayard Rustin
#151. It is, in short, the growing conviction that the Negroes cannot win - a conviction with much grounding in experience - which accounts for the new popularity of black power. So far as the ghetto Negro is concerned, this conviction expresses itself in hostility, first toward the people closest to him who have held out the most promise and failed to deliver (Martin Luther King, Roy Wilkins, etc.), then toward those who have proclaimed themselves his friends (the liberals and the labor movement), and finally toward the only oppressors he can see (the local storekeeper and the policeman on the corner). On the leadership level, the conviction that the Negroes cannot win takes other forms, principally the adoption of what I have called a "no-win" policy. Why bother with programs when their enactment results only in sham? Why concern ourselves with the image of the movement when nothing significant has been gained for all the sacrifices made by SNCC and CORE? Why compromise with reluctant white allies when nothing of consequence can be achieved anyway? Why indeed have anything to do with whites at all?

On this last point, it is extremely important for white liberals to understand what, one gathers from their references to "racism in reverse," the President and the Vice-President of the United States do not: that there is all the difference in the world between saying, "If you don't want me, I don't want you" (which is what some proponents of black power have in effect bee #Quote by Bayard Rustin
Compromise quotes by Bruce Sterling
#152. I'm convinced that no normal human being ever woke up one morning and said, "Dammit, my life doesn't have enough petty bureaucratic rules, zero-tolerance policies, censorship, and fear in it. How do I fix that?" Instead, they let this stuff pile up, one compromise at a time, building up huge sores suppurating with spore-loaded fluids that eventually burst free and beslime everything around them. It gets normal to them, one dribble at a time. #Quote by Bruce Sterling
Compromise quotes by Billy Graham
#153. Daniel and his companions were tempted to forsake their godly heritage but they refused. They even faced a fiery furnace rather than compromise. #Quote by Billy Graham
Compromise quotes by Dariusz Karlowicz
#154. This is what the Apologists can teach us about the world, culture, and philosophy. The pendulum steadily swings between contempt and wonder. The aim is not compromise between these stances, rather we need both the extremes of the swing simultaneously. Each extreme taken on its own is too confined for Christian teaching, and so: neither unconditional rejection, nor unconditional embrace. #Quote by Dariusz Karlowicz

Compromise quotes by Anne Rice
#157. That passivity in me has been the core of it all, the real evil. That weakness, that refusal to compromise a fractured and stupid morality, that awful pride! For that, I let myself become the thing I am, when I knew it was wrong. For that, I let Claudia become the vampire she became, when I knew it was wrong. For that, I stood by and let her kill Lestat, when I knew that was wrong, the very thing that was her undoing. I lifted not a finger to prevent it. And Madeleine, Madeleine, I let her come to that, when I should never have made her a creature like ourselves. I knew that was wrong! Well, I tell you I am no longer that passive, weak creature that has spun evil from evil till the web is vast and thick while I remain its stultified victim. It's over! #Quote by Anne Rice
Compromise quotes by Arthur Koestler
#158. Sympathy, conscience, disgust, despair, repentance, and atonement are for us repellent debauchery. To sit down and let oneself be hypnotized by one's own navel, to turn up one's eyes and humbly offer the back of one's neck to Gletkin's revolver - that is an easy solution. The greatest temptation for the like of us is: to renounce violence, to repent, to make peace with oneself. Most great revolutionaries fell before this temptation, from Spartacus to Danton and Dostoevsky; they are the classical form of betrayal of the cause. The temptations of God were always more dangerous for mankind than those of Satan. As long as chaos dominates the world, God is ananachronism; and every compromise with one's own conscience is perfidy. When the accursed inner voice speaks to you, hold your hands over your ears. ..." He felt for the bottle behind him and poured out an other glass. Rubashov noticed that the bottle was already half empty. You also could do with a little solace, he thought.

"The greatest criminals in history," Ivanov went on, "are not of the type Nero and Fouché, but of the type Gandhi and Tolstoy. Gandhi's inner voice has done more to prevent the liberation of India than the British guns. To sell oneself for thirty pieces of silver is an honest transaction; but to sell oneself to one's own conscience is to abandon mankind. History is a priori amoral; it has no conscience.

Compromise quotes by Hans J. Morgenthau
#160. The kind of thinking required for the successful conduct of foreign policy must at times be diametrically opposed to the kind of considerations by which the masses and their representatives are likely to be moved. The peculiar qualities of the statesman's mind are not always likely to find a favorable response in the popular mind. The statesman must think in terms of the national interest, conceived as power among other powers. The popular mind, unaware of the fine distinctions of the statesman's thinking, reasons more often than not in the simple moralistic and legalistic terms of absolute good and absolute evil. The statesman must take the long view, proceeding slowly and by detours, paying with small losses for great advantage; he must be able to temporize, to compromise, to bide his time. The popular mind wants quick results; it will sacrifice tomorrow's real benefit for today's apparent advantage. #Quote by Hans J. Morgenthau

#165. I think if the doctor is a good doctor and has a patient's best interest in mind then he's not going to allow anything to compromise that patient's care. The bottom line is the doctor has to care for his patient. You have to have that overwhelming sense of welfare for your patient. #Quote by Charles Teo

Compromise quotes by Melody Beattie
#167. Sometimes compromise is important. Sometimes it's better to give in to someone else's wishes in order to have fun as a group or as a couple, or for the benefit of the team. Sometimes compromise is dangerous. We need to guard against compromising our standards to gain the approval or love of someone else. Decide when you can, and when you cannot, compromise. If it's not harmful and you are ambivalent about a decision, then compromise. If it could lead to breaking your values, compromise isn't a good idea. #Quote by Melody Beattie
Compromise quotes by John Walford
#168. Put crudely, one is left with a choice between two unsatisfactory combinations: artistic integrity married to spiritual compromise; and spiritual integrity married to artistic banality-or, worse, art compromised on both counts. Neither one will satisfy those who recognize the fundamental necessity of integrity in both faith and art. #Quote by John Walford

Compromise quotes by Isaac Marion
#170. The apocalypse didn't happen overnight. The world didn't end in a satisfying climax of explosive special effects. It was slow. It was boring. It was one little thing at a time. One moral compromise, one abandoned ideal, one more justified injustice. No dramatic wave of destruction sweeping across the world, just scattered spots of rot forming throughout the decades, seemingly isolated incidents until the moment they all merged. #Quote by Isaac Marion
Compromise quotes by David Novak

Compromise quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#172. I must confess that here I had to compromise the principle of giving no commission, which in Bombay I had so scrupulously observed. I was told that conditions in the two cases were different; that whilst in Bombay commissions had to be paid to touts, here they had to be paid to vakils who briefed you; and that here as in Bombay all barristers, without exception, paid a percentage of their fees as commission. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Compromise quotes by Anne De Gandt
#173. Couples follow each other, sure of themselves and bold, in the starchy set of the easy ways. The concessions gap is growing. Dominant models who want to be the rule, like a distorted norm of bad company. Sheltered with certainties, they look at me mockingly, while I struggle in a lost erroneous and obsolete myth; they tell me where to go, how to live. The easy compromise, whatever emotional or material, shrinks your smile. It's easier to live side by side, than truly love. I know it. It's easier to hide from love, than take the forever path of its desire. To fall, at any cost, into the punished beam of a broken solitude. #Quote by Anne De Gandt

Compromise quotes by Lionel Trilling
#181. Man ... is an inextricable tangle of culture and biology. And not being simple, he is not simply good; he has ... a kind of hell within him from which rise everlastingly the impulses which threaten his civilization. He has the faculty of imagining for himself more in the way of pleasure and satisfaction than he can possibly achieve. Everything that he gains he pays for in more than equal coin; compromise and the compounding with defeat constitute his best way of getting through the world. His best qualities are the result of a struggle whose outcome is tragic. Yet he is a creature of love ... #Quote by Lionel Trilling

The task of a truly revolutionary party is not to declare that it is impossible to renounce all compromises, but to be able, through all compromises, when they are unavoidable, to remain true to its principles, to its class, to its revolutionary purpose, to its task of paving the way for revolution and educating the mass of the people for victory in the revolution. #Quote by Vladimir Ilyich Lenin

Compromise quotes by Joyce Vissell
#186. Obviously, the choice between human selfishness and divine Selfishness is not about leaving or not leaving a relationship. More important are the day-to-day opportunities in the course of relationship. It is really the choice of living from the heart or living from fear. And how do you live from fear? Saying "yes" when your heart wants to say "no." Saying "no" when your heart wants to say "yes." By not listening to your heart (i.e., what is best for your soul), you compromise your truth, and cause suffering in the relationship. You may be afraid of hurting your friend. You may be afraid of losing their love and friendship. Whatever it is you are afraid of, it is still fear that is ruling you, rather than love. #Quote by Joyce Vissell

Compromise quotes by Jose N Harris
#190. BETRAYAL
No failure in Life, whether of love or money, is ever really that simple; it usually involves a type of a shadowy betrayal, buried in a secret, mass grave of shared hopes and dreams.

That universal mass grave exists in a private cemetery that most... both those suffering from the loss, but especially those committing the betrayal, refuse to acknowledge its existence.

When you realize you've been deeply betrayed, fear really hits you. That's what you feel first. And then it's anger and frustration. Then disspointment and disilussionment.

Part of the problem is how little we understand about the ultimate effects and consequences of betrayal on our hearts and spirits; and on trust and respect for our fellow brothers and sisters.

In writing, there are only really a few good stories to tell, and in the end, and betrayal and the failure of love is one of the most powerful stories to tell.

Tragedy in life normally comes with betrayal and compromise- by trading in our integrity and failing to treat life and others in our life, with respect and dignity. That's really where the truest and the most tragic failures comes from... they come making the choice to betray another soul, and in turn, giving up a peice of your own. #Quote by Jose N Harris

It was Churchill in particular who opposed all compromise, who talked to his fellow cabinet members for days on end and finally won over Chamberlain, who, after 1938, was also convinced of Hitler's evil intentions. 'Hitler's terms, if accepted, would put us completely at his mercy,' Churchill believed. And: 'Nations which went down fighting rose again, but those which surrendered tamely were finished.'

#192. ...the wincing sunlight, the ragged gorse and the slow-blinking wings of the moths were witness to an epic Trade in Exotic Terms.

Mosca's opening offer was a number of cant words she had heard pedlars use, words for the drool hanging from a dog's jaw, words for the greenish sheen on a mouldering strip of bacon.

Eponymous Clent responded with some choice descriptions of ungrateful and treacherous women, culled from ballad and classic myth.

Mosca countered with some from her secret hoard of hidden words, the terms used by smugglers for tell-alls, and soldiers' words for the worst kind of keyholestooping spy.

Clent answered with crushing and high-sounding examples from the best essays on the natural depravity of unguided youth.

Compromise quotes by Rebecca Serle

Moving constantly forward in space but never actually touching, for fear of throwing each other off course. Like if we were aligned in the same direction, we'd never have to compromise.

WE just didn't notice because we were still looking at the same horizon. But it dawns on me that I want someone in my way. I want us to collide. #Quote by Rebecca Serle
